The year is 1956, and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein is having its annual quiche breakfast. Daily life is calm and quiet, and excitement is kept to a minimum. However, there's an unexpected item on the agenda this year: the very real threat of atom bombs being dropped on their idyllic town. As the meeting adjourns to the bomb shelter, things take a turn for the worse. Cramped in a small space with the last quiche on Earth and the future uncertain, scandalous secrets come out and tensions -- sexual and otherwise -- rise among the women. Learn More

A compact, creepy delight, this one-act brings the comedic menace of an Edward Gorey illustration to the macabre storytelling of Edgar Allan Poe. Deliciously unsettling with plenty of tricks up its puffy Victorian sleeves.
